Prince: ‘The Internet Machines Are Putting Numbers in Our Brain Parts’

With Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic rants crossing that fine line between adorable and terroristic threats, it’s nice to see there’s “artists” like Prince who still dabble in the kind of crazy that more closely resembles your grandfather’s dementia. Via Amy Grindhouse:

[Prince] explains that he decided [his new] album will be released in CD format only in the Mirror. There’ll be no downloads anywhere in the world because of his ongoing battles against internet abuses. Unlike most other rock stars, he has banned YouTube and iTunes from using any of his music and has even closed down his own official website. He says “The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it. The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.

I just have one thing to say to Prince:
